    Lesson learned - don't mess with the camera you don't know very well in the dark, cause you'll bump something and not know what it was...

    help! The AF Area that comes up in SCP is now only 9 squares - anyone know to to revert this? I thought it was because I may have bumped the 2x preset, but that doesn't seem to be it.

    I think the only thing I brushed in the dark was the D-pad - but that doesn't seem to do anything either.

    Thanks, Jim

    With the SCP up highlight the focus grid, and press OK to edit it.

    When the boxes fill the screen, press INFO...then press UP until only one box appears, and press INFO again.

    Now use the arrow pad to select where you want the focus point.

    Press OK one last time.

    Thanks Mike - this didn't fit my problem, but I stumbled on a fix while doing this. Cheers.

    It was the two time magnify thing, but wasn't changeable in SCP mode - needed to back to shooting mode, change to 1x and then it was fine.
